Queen's School of Computing

In general, a degree plan in the Faculty of Arts and Science consists of required (or core) courses, options, and electives. Electives can be any course in the Arts and Science Calendar. Special permission is needed for an Arts and Science student to take courses from other faculties (Applied Science, Business, etc) as electives, unless those courses are already listed in the Arts and Science Calendar. A student in fourth year with a first class average may apply to take a CISC graduate course in place of a 400 level CISC course. The student must obtain approval from the department and from the course instructor. If the student later enters a graduate CISC program at Queen's, this course cannot count toward the graduate degree.

All Computing concentrations start with CISC 121. If you take CISC 101 or CISC 110 before taking CISC 121, it will count as an elective for you. With the exception of CISC 498/6.0, all CISC courses are 3-unit courses.

Bachelor of Arts (Honours) in Computing and the Creative Arts (COCA-P-BAH)

Computing and the Creative Arts is a 114-unit plan. Full year courses (indicated by /6.0) count as 6 units and half-year courses count as 3 units.

For complete details, see the COCA course page or Arts and Science Calendar.

All Computing concentrations start with CISC 121. Students without any programming experience should take either CISC 101 (Elements of Computing Science) or CISC 110 (Elementary Computer Animation) as an elective before CISC 121. With the exception of CISC 498/6.0, all CISC courses are 3-unit courses.

See the COCA prerequisite chart for basic information on the Arts sub-plans. For complete information, see the Arts and Science calendar plans document.
